Alejandro Escovedo is going on tour with St. Louis' Jimmy Griffin.

Every Alejandro Escovedo show should be required viewing, but this one promises something extra special for fans of St. Louis music. The rock-roots legend's show will be supported by Jimmy Griffin, frontman of the Incurables and guitarist for El Monstero. A formidable talent on his own, Griffin is also a frequent wingman to Escovedo and did time touring as a member of his band last year. He will open the show with an acoustic performance of Incurables songs, then Escovedo will play solo before being joined by Griffin and an all-star collection of local musicians featuring members of the Feed, the Funky Butt Brass Band and Dr. Zhivegas.

After the Show: Escovedo and Griffin are hitting the road for a short solo tour (in a Lincoln) before Escovedo meets up with his band the Sensitive Boys.
